For the most part, my experience with adoption has been focused upon a certain facet of adoption, through heartbreaking situations related to adoption from the perspective of abuse, and foster care, and psychiatric issues. But that is only part of the story of the realm of adoption!
I think your heart will be inspired as mine was as you listen to the personal witness (and authentic love and compassion) of these two mothers in their own family experiences, as well as how they are taking it to the streets in their work of educating adolescents and adults about adoption as a loving option to abortion.
Through their own agony and poverty of spirit rooted in the inability to naturally conceive and give birth to biological children, Maria and Jenny pour out their self-donative, feminine gift of spiritual motherhood, offering love and mercy to all those they encounter by mentoring, supporting, and educating others about the realities of the adoption process and living family life as an adoptive, faithful family.
How striking it was to hear the love and mercy embedded in the stories and information Maria and Jenny shared today!
These two intelligent women – women who left behind their professional careers to serve their families (and us!) – moved me so deeply with their hearts that simply overflow with love for all persons and aspects that are involved in an adoption situation.
I think it’s pretty awe-striking what women do when we cooperate through grace with our feminine creation. Imbued with grace through openness and receptivity in the midst of their own personal suffering, these two smart mamas are not only mothering their families, they are spiritually mothering everyone whom they encounter.
Listen in today as Maria and Jenny share their personal stories, dispel myths about adoption, and bear witness to the love and mercy they pour out upon countless families who seek their nurturance, experience, and care.
